How do I unsynch dropbox from my computer?

How do I unsynch dropbox from my computer?

New member | Level 2

I synched my desktop files to Dropbox. Now I have exceeded dropbox storage limits and so cannot see files shared with me by others. I want to delete the desktop files stored on dropbox so I will have more space. But when I delete on dropbox it deletes on my computer. I cannot see a way to unsynch so that this does not happen. Please tell me what I can do. Thanks

You have the computer backup feature enabled.
